2010 Rosso Pesce Red Tuscany
people love it!
Summer isn't only about drinking whites and roses. Don't be afraid to change things up and kick back a few glasses of red on the hot and sunny days (whenever they decide to show up).
John Matta, owner and winemaker at Vicchiomaggio, a winery in Tuscany that produces top quality reds, wanted to shatter the 'white wine with fish' rule. Enter the brand new, 2007 Rosso Pesce. By using some of the best grapes available, he was able to create an easy-drinking, dry red that you can pick up for a "Hamilton." Made from 100% Tuscan Sangiovese (the same grape used to make Chianti), this wine has subtle ripe red fruit flavors and very light tannins.
Ring the homies, fire up the BBQ and grab a couple bottles of this tasty vino. Drink out of a crystal wine glass or just pour it into a Solo cup. This is one wine that won't judge you.
Drink liberally with grilled whole fish, tuna sliders or crab cakes.
